Featured Community Profile: Scott County

Scott City and Scott County have a history of being focused on progress. Founded by a woman in 1886, they are a community that gets things done. For example, they have been working aggressively to expand housing opportunities to accommodate the needs of current and new residents. “We are willing to invest in ourselves so that when a business or family wants to come here, they can do so because we have done more to make it possible.  It takes time to understand why Scott City does things so well but it’s because we don’t like mediocrity at all. We may not always achieve #1 status but because we shoot for the top, we often achieve superior results” said Katie Eisenhour, Executive Director of The Scott County Development Committee, Inc.

We're Excited to Connect with You!

wKREDA is a coalition of people in the 55 western Kansas counties who've decided to pool their resources, both human and financial, to work together for the common good of western Kansas. wKREDA's members maintain a collaborative affiliation with each other so that we are able to achieve both our individual, and our collective, rural development goals.

As a volunteer organization, wKREDA is governed by a 12-member Board of Directors who meet quarterly to coordinate the activities of the alliance. The Board organizes the activities for the Business Development, Government Affairs, Education and Public Relations committees. In addition, many ad hoc task force groups are created as needed to meet the opportunities and challenges faced by wKREDA's membership.

We're excited to talk about western Kansas with anyone who may be interested in this wonderful place we call home.
